Regional Evensong and Meet The Director

Saturday 29th June 2019


All Saints’ Church, Leighton Buzzard


We are pleased to announce that the new Director of the RSCM, Hugh Morris, is coming to direct a Regional Evensong at All Saints’ Church, Leighton Buzzard on Saturday 29th June (the feast of St Peter).


All are welcome to join us at this event, which we hope will be well-supported.


The rehearsal is at 3:15pm and the service (BCP) is at 5:30pm, finishing at around 6:20pm.  The accompanist will be Nicholas King.  The service will be followed by an opportunity to meet Hugh (and your Area Committee) socially until about 7:30pm and to ask questions.  You do not need to attend both these events; you are welcome at just one of them.


Repertoire for the Evensong is:

               Introit : Holy is the true light – Harris New Church Anthem Book page 164

               Hymn : Thou art the Christ, O Lord NEH172

               Responses : Tomkins Church Music Society booklet, page 16

               Psalm 138 Parish Psalter

               Office hymn : Let the round world with songs rejoice NEH214, second tune

               Canticles : Noble in B minor

               Anthem : Lo, round the throne a glorious band – Ley New Church Anthem Book page 215

               Hymn : Give me the wings of faith to rise NEH225, second tune

Any editions of the introit, responses, canticles and anthem can be used; the indications above, which are purely for reference, are those most likely to be held already by most participants.  We should be able to organise loan copies for those who need them; please indicate this on the booking form.  Annotated copies of the hymns and psalm will be sent to participants nearer to the date.

The cost for the Regional Evensong is £5 per head.  There is no charge for the social event, though donations will be invited towards the cost of refreshments – please note that we will only serve wine to those aged 18 or over.

If you can display a poster for this event at your church, please do. Click here for an A4 poster or here  for two A5 flyers.

Bookings are now open using the form below, and will remain open until Saturday 15th June.  Further information will be sent to participants as soon as possible after that date.
